The work plan will have the following S&T components. Component 1: Cross-sectional Study
Component 2: Prospective Study
This open-label randomized placebo-controlled trial would be done in 150 pre-diabetic women with vitamin D deficiency. The women will be recruited from cross-sectional study, out patient department and health camps and they will be followed up for 2 years. The women will be randomized into two groups; lifestyle modification counseling along with intervention with either vitamin D or placebo. The levels of vitamin D and blood glucose will be assessed periodically (every 6 months). In those having recurrent vitamin D deficiency, the course of vitamin D will be repeated. At the end of the study, incidence of T2DM in both groups will be compared.

The investigators aim to determine the effect of the correction of vitamin D in vitamin D deficient patients (
Vitamin D supplementation in minority subjects with both pre-diabetes and low vitamin D levels will delay the development of diabetes.
Prediabetes is a substantial problem in India not only because it itself can be associated with morbidities such as coronary artery disease but also because it is a point of important for ...
Prediabetes is the term used for people whose glucose levels do not meet the criteria for diabetes but are too high to be considered normal. This is defined by the presence of blood glucos...
The overall goal of this study is to investigate the effects and the mechanisms of action of a fish peptide and vitamin D on glucose metabolism, insulin secretion, and cardiometabolic risk...
Vitamin D levels are negatively correlated with prediabetes risk and hemoglobin A1c levels in individuals with prediabetes. The data are, however, scarce and inconsistent among different populations. ...
A putative causal relationship between vitamin D status and glucose metabolism and a direct effect of vitamin D on cardiac autonomic function (CAF) have been suggested. We hypothesized that vitamin D ...
The role of vitamin D and asthma in pulmonary function changes showed conflicting result.
In the phase II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Supplementation of Vigantol Oil versus Placebo Add-on in Patients with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) Receiving Rebif Treat...
The link between Vitamin-D deficiency and type 2 diabetes (T2D) is well-established. Since prediabetic obese populations have the greatest risk to develop to T2D, it was important in our study to exam...
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.
A family of phylloquinones that contains a ring of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone and an isoprenoid side chain. Members of this group of vitamin K 1 have only one double bond on the proximal isoprene unit. Rich sources of vitamin K 1 include green plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria. Vitamin K1 has antihemorrhagic and prothrombogenic activity.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN E in the diet, characterized by posterior column and spinocerebellar tract abnormalities, areflexia, ophthalmoplegia, and disturbances of gait, proprioception, and vibration. In premature infants vitamin E deficiency is associated with hemolytic anemia, thrombocytosis, edema, intraventricular hemorrhage, and increasing risk of retrolental fibroplasia and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. An apparent inborn error of vitamin E metabolism, named familial isolated vitamin E deficiency, has recently been identified. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1181)
